  • Way to go

    Well, another school year is in the books in Marion County. Several things happened recently that I believe are worth mentioning. Several athletes from Marion County High School put up some impressive feats, a team did something that has only happened twice before, and one athlete had an absolute monstrous week at the plate from the softball team.

  • Sometimes you can't pick just one

    It was hard to narrow down just one topic this week for my column, so I decided to try to incorporate all three things that were on my mind.

  • Tennis, track turn in top showings

  • GR8NESS

    Okay, so I know you see by the title of this column that I am going to write about the Kentucky Wildcats. Yes, it will be the last time I write about them, at least until next basketball season.
    Last Monday night was a wonderful night for all fans of the Kentucky Wildcats.  The Cats brought home a national championship to Lexington, the eighth championship in school history, and the first one since 1998, the year I graduated high school.

  • Near death experience

    Well, the big game is over.
    With all the anticipation leading up to the game, I'm almost sad to see it be over. Of course, the game I am referring to was the battle of the Bluegrass between Kentucky and Louisville. As we all know, the Wildcats pulled out the eight-point victory much to the pleasure of most likely the biggest Kentucky fan I know, Bobby Joe Farmer.

  • What a great time of year

    What a great time of year it is! It is now officially spring, and as of last week, each spring sport has started up and began competition. The weather so far for the games, meets, and matches I have attended has been great, much warmer than last year when I remember going to events bundled up in pants, sweatshirts, and even gloves. I know that it may not stay like this, but if it does, I sure won't complain.  

  • I love the madness of March

    Well, this is most likely my favorite month of the year, especially this past week. I love watching basketball, and with the first three rounds of the NCAA tournament taking over our television sets, I just can't get enough. For 12 hours straight, on two separate days, basketball took over my television.  With all tournament games being broadcast, the recall button got overworked the past few days switching back and forth between games.

  • What a ride

    As I am typing this column, I am totally worn out.
    I have spent this past weekend in Bowling Green with my husband Josh, my daughter, Karli, my mom, and my uncle, along with many other Marion County fans, watching the Lady Knights basketball team as they made history once again.  

  • It's that time of year

    Well, the calendar just flipped another page into the month of March. Where does the time go? I remember when I was in school, people would tell me that time seems to pass by faster as you get older. At the time I thought they were just saying that, but now I am beginning to see that they were right.

  • Success on the hardwood

    Throughout the basketball seasons, I have observed some great games. That was also true this past week and weekend while attending the district basketball games held at Taylor County High School. With both the boys and girls teams having the No. 1 seed in the district standings, they were both able to play Campbellsville on Tuesday of last week, both winning their respective games and guaranteeing their trips to the 5th Region tournament.
